That is the difficult thing about forums to me. No one really knows how good anyone really is and whether they really know what they are talking about. I might give advice saying a blade has good control or something, but I have pretty good touch myself and can control most bats whereas someone less experienced or used to something slower would say it had poor control.
I am ranked in the top 200 in England if that gives any more clues, personally I don't think that vids do me justice as there is a considerable amount of spin on many of those shots and serves which just doesn't show.

JKC, you are doing it all wrong and you are totally unfit. The only thing that has me baffled is that your opponent looks very fit and has a good set of strokes but yet he loses to you.

I'm surprised so few have noticed this dilemma when the criticise your game.

It is easy to claim that you don't move around, but in all honesty, in the video I watched, you reached to the ball in time, so why should you move any more? Perhaps good players run a lap around the table before they hit, simple to prove how fit they are? Or, is it the 976 rated players who do this? I don't know...

As for your technique, it is horrible! Yet you seem to have higher consistency then me and your opponent looks troubled by a lot of your returns, so I guess it isn't important how your strokes looks, what is important is the results you get with them.

I've seen players with flawless techniques being beaten by players looking like basement noobs, so looks can be deceptive, but you are not fooling me JKC, I know that you are surely pass 2000 Usatt, but I dare not guess how much.

I dare however guess that you would beat anyone under 1000 Usatt even if you played left handed and had both of your feet nailed to the floor. But still, I think you should listen to their advice, cause they might be excellent coaches and you might pick up a thing or two to improve your game!

I'll take that on board Speedplay. Tomorrow, I'll get a divorce, give up my job, send the kids to live with Granny and start on my new fitness regime. Then when I am ultra fit I will dedicate the rest of my life to TT. Anyone want a knock?LOL

Psh. All this coming from a guy who plays with long pips. Everyone knows that only people with no skills use long pips to cover up the fact that they suck. Real players play inverted.

Yeah, anti is the new LP, for losers. You disgust me.


Jay Slash Kay! I'd be scared of you still I hate the way loops come back from anti! And to make sure people who don't understand the art of sarcasm know, ANTI AND LP DOES TAKE SKILL TO USE.

I have a few older ones of matches but these are all on video and I don't have the technology to transfer them at the moment. .


JKC I have a device called Pinnacle video Transfer which is supposed to be the thing to use. If you are at JBL this weekend I can give you a long loan.

I won't be at JBL, but could possibly get there if it is close. Which venue is it at?
I could do my wedding vids too and score some brownie points with the wife.

JBL will be at Wolverhampton. The next event after that is Doncaster. Will you be there? I won't, but a couple of others from here will probably be there.

I don't tend to be involved in the JBL stuff, maybe in a couple of years.Wink
 
I'll probably leave it for now. I should have a chance to record more stuff at the next BL weekend anyway in 3 weeks.
 
Thanks for the kind offer though.

JKC, I saw some earlier comments on your ability to move around ... I think with your reflexes as strong as they are, and your natural technique, I don't think you need to move around the table like a 18-yr old, 50 kilo Chinese :)

Even if I made it to 50 kg, I still wouldn't bother moving that much as i like to take things nice and easy whenever possible.

To be clear, mods assistant mods have the exact same tools and privileges to work with. Forum admin Alexli confirmed it.

@jkc: shall we watch your league match vs wiggy if you tape it?
By "arch enemy" did you mean you share games with him  aka "It can go either way" ?
If yes I am looking forward to watching you playing a guy same level as yours.
Crank it up and destroy!!!

Wiggy's ranking is higher than mine, so I am expected to lose. But it is 1-1 in matches previously. We haven't played for about 3 or 4 years though.
